Nameless Detective series

46 works, 40 primary works

In a master stroke (or maybe just a happy accident), Bill Pronzini never got around to giving his private eye protagonist a name. He then turned around and made him such a well-rounded, finely-drawn character that a name was superflous. He's the detective as Everyman. Middle-aged, out of shape, content with a cold beer and one of his beloved pulp magazines to read, NAMELESS was the first true couch potato P.I.
